PRLog - March 7, 2011 - MARINE PARADE, Singapore -- Mitigating the plight of this ageing population, Active Medical (Asia Pacific) Pte Ltd, in collaboration with Singapore's leading health and beauty chain Guardian Health & Beauty, launched eAlert! Personal Emergency Response System (PERS). Specially research and designed in the US, the eAlert! is the world's first and smallest 2-way voice emergency pendant communicator that provides 24/7 emergency assistance at a touch of a button.
eAlert! Personal Emergency Response System
“The rapid increase of Singapore’s ageing population is a serious problem for our country. With more caregivers having to take care of more than one elderly person; providing timely medical assistance in an emergency is now a necessity. The eAlert! is a tested and proven system that connects the user instantly to a care specialist at the touch of a button. We believe eAlert! can enable the elderly to live independently and provide their family with a peace of mind,” said Mr. Kelvin Lek, Managing Director of Active Medical (Asia Pacific) Pte Ltd.
In an emergency, timing is everything. After a fall, 90% of people who get help within one hour will continue to live independently, but after 12 hours without any aid, only 10% of the people can continue to live independently at home. Hence, as work demands continue to dominate the schedules of caregivers in Singapore, it is increasingly important for the elderly to be able to live independently. This can be done with the use of eAlert! which will bring peace of mind to the caregivers while providing the elderly with a sense of independence at home.
